ICSketches #39

After taking a break from Inspirational Card Sketches last week (due to attending FIL's funeral and having MIL to stay afterwards) I'm back with a card for this week's fab sketch #39.

This week we're sponsored by

Doodle Palace and if you play along with the sketch you could win 4 free digi-images. Don't forget to pop along to the other DT ladies' blogs to see their fab work and leave them some love!

Anyway here's my card which I had great fun making:

I used white card embossed with a Fiskars embossing plate to make the moon and used black soot distress ink around the edges. The dark blue card was lightened around the moon by using white chalk ink. The rocket image from Doodle Palace was printed on to watercolour paper and then coloured using Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils. The planet is from a digi-doodles set by the fab Kate Hadfield and the stars are acetate ones covered with Stickles. There are also Stickles dotted on the background and then the starburst under the rocket is embossed stamping.

Materials used: blue Stardream card, white Papermill card, Fiskars embossinjg plate, Black Soot distress ink, white Colorbox chalk ink, watercolour paper, rocket ship from Doodle Palace, planet from Kate Hadfield, Heidi Swapp acetate stars, Stickles glitter glue, Fancy Pants Fresh Mod stamp, Creative Beginnings embossing powder, Creative Imagination alphabet stickers.
